Such a massive site. When you think that all that is left is the foundation of the this impressive Inca archeological site and that the spanish used all the stones from here to build the 16+ churches of the city, you can only imagine how it must have looked before the spanish messed it up...

We really enjoyed this amazing place. It was an Incan fort and sacred place and showcases the unbelievable Incan stone walls. Also the views of Cusco from the top are magnificent!

We took a cab up the hill to the top entrance & walked our way back in to town. I would absolutely recommend it. Take your time here in Sacsayhuaman, there's so much to see, you might even be lucky and stumble across a group of llamas.

We did the circuit 1 tourist ticket which gets you into all 4 ruins just outside of Cusco. Easy to get to on a local bus and you can walk between them too. Really fascinating places and super interesting to spend a day looking round.

We booked a visit to this well maintained/restored non knowing how great and interesting it would have been. Beside the guide well knowledgeable of the history of the location (and his continuos joke about the pronunciation that sounds like "sexy woman"...). Well worth a visit when in Cusco. Plan for about 3 hrs. from/back to Cusco.

I love history and this visit was awesome. I marvel at how the Incas were able to build this with no mortar.

Totally worth the time and small fee. This is a sacred site of the Inca. Cusco was the center of their universe so this site was important to the Inca.
